Worried...plz any advice would Be wonderful....

Ok here is my story...I found out i was pregnant on July 16 by taking a Home Pg Test... I had a period around June 18th but it was very abnormal..it only lasted a few days and very very light...My periods are always 5 days and much heavier....Before that my last normal period was May 22nd. On July 26 I went in to planned parenthod for a sono just to see how far along i was...WEll they told me I was 5weeks & 6days.... As of today that would put me at... 9weeks 5 days..They also gave me an EDD of March 23rd. Well I made an appt with my doctor who has been my doctor for 13 years. on Aug 20th..The doctor listened for a heartbeat with his doppler..And picked up on a heartbeat of 180..He said I must be at least 12 weeks if he can pick up the heartbeat..Well then he checked me by pushing on my stomach and also checked my vagina and gave me a new due date of March 1st...Im scared to death that maybe he is thinking im further along becuz im having twins..???? What does everyone else think..Why did the doctor that did the sono have me at 9 and my doctor at 12. The second doctor based it on my size and also picking up on the heartbeat..Im nervous..Im a single mom of 2 now...

i first went to the dr at 8w3d and i was able to hear the heartbeat so i dont think thats right that they say you are farther based on that. you may want to find a dr to give you a 2nd opinion.

Re: Worried...plz any advice would Be wonderful....

They usually go by your LMP, even if it was light. As far as the heartbeat,I think they can pick it up at 12 weeks, or at least that is when they usually listen. Are you getting another U/S? I think the Dr. may be off, he should be going by your LMP as far as the due date. Also, the U/S can be helpful in an EDD.

I would get another opinion ASAP. It can not hurt. Good luck!!
